I got an order just before the Thanksgiving holiday for a personalized leather pamphlet. I actually started working on it when I suddenly realized that I could take some photos during the process and post a “how-it’s-done” post on my blog. This isn’t really a step-by-step tutorial so much as an explanation of what all goes into making one of these pamphlets.
I got a book for the holidays that I just love, so I thought I’d share a bit about it here. It’s filled to the brim with instructions, details and tips for carving incredibly realistic images in leather. But I think this book has value for more than just leatherworkers.
